Treason depends on the definition of Enemy
Art III, Sec 3 of the Constitution defines treason, sort of. It depends on who an "Enemy" is. Back in the day when war was declared by Congress and peace was made by treaty, this was not a problem...

Since one game is stuck in pause purgatory and the other is an NMR ridden disaster, who wants to start a new round? No RR requirements but I have final say over who plays.

Why are people not playing LIVE games nowadays?
I am back after a long time. 4 years to be precise. But when I left, there used to be a lot of LIVE games all the times. Now, whenever I peek the website out of curiosity, I never find a LIVE game. I tried making rooms, but no one ever joined!

What happened here? :p
Care to brief me a bit?

Live games are less popular than they used to be. I haven't crunched any numbers but if I had to guess I would say that 1v1 has actually made more live games happen than we had otherwise.

Most of us who used to keep the live game community going got sick of the long games, NMR, cheating, and also grew up and can't sit around a computer consistently to check every five minutes for 4 hours.

Can be tough playing live games for four hours when you have other stuff to do. And it's made worse by players that NMR or save but don't ready their moves so the entire 5 or 7 minutes has to pass for every single move. I wonder if it would increase the number of live games if you had 2 minute phases? That would make NMRs and players who refuse to ready a lot more bearable, and the games would be much faster. I don't see how that could be a hard code change.
slypups (1375 D)
17 Mar 17 UTC
Or 5 minute diplomacy phases, but just 1 or 2 minute retreat and build phases - that of course would be a lot more coding work.

Oh it's actually pretty neat.
A_Tin_Can (1958 D)
18 Mar 17 UTC
Yep! It's very neat, especially considering it was a one man project with a few random contributors over the years. Major interface changes are hard (mostly because it was written around ten years ago, and interface design philosophy has changed a lot), but a lot of the other changes are fairly straightforward. The hardest part is usually testing.

Contributions welcome! And we can chat off the forum if you have questions.

Of all the people that have influenced music in the last 60 years, from the Beatles to Muddy Waters to whoever you like, Chuck Berry will probably be the one they still talk about hundreds of years down the road. A real legend in music.

World Diplomacy Map Alterations
Hello WebDiplomacy. I have a group of people are making a physical World Diplomacy map for a big event, but we have agreed the board has some problems. Most of the people weighing on this issue say they want to take away South Africa's unit in Antarctica and instead put it in Madagascar as a fleet. However, I am worried that, unless South Africa and Argentina actively worked to stop this, it would give Antarctica too many possibilities for expansion in its home continent.

Petition to ban Capt Brad from full press games
Hi everyone. I'm starting a petition to ban capt brad from full press games. I love capt brad as much as the next person, but I think he's harming the integrity (or something) of the non-password protected full press community. Not only is he in 47 games, but he doesn't send press. Someone pls stop this
